Boston — Michael Wacha, the Cardinals' rookie from Texarkana, was leading at the World Series until the bottom of the sixth.
That's when David Ortiz ripped a two-run homer over the Green Monster to give the Red Sox a 2-1 lead.
Up until then, Wacha had been the talk of Game Two.
The East Texan, who used to pitch for Pleasant Grove High School and Texas A&M, threw a season-high 114 pitches at Fenway Park.
Wacha, who was the National League Championship Series MVP, finished his night by pitching six innings.
The right-hander allowed three hits, walked four and had six strikeouts.

Game Three will be in Saint Louis Saturday night at 7:00.
